My passion is using the practices of yoga–especially alignment-based asana, pranayama, and meditation–to safely open up the inner and outer worlds to deeper exploration. As student and teacher, together we grow and evolve our understanding of ourselves and life’s possibilities.”
Explore a yoga practice that fosters a soft and open heart; a clear, sharp mind; and a vibrant, strong and flexible body. These qualities will always serve, and more importantly, empower service to others. These classes with Randall will help you find, whether in a class or anywhere else along your highway, a map and fuel for your journey with passion. Whether you’re driving full-speed ahead or stopping to enjoy the scenic view, his intention is to help you realize your ultimate freedom and happiness, because that’s your true nature.

BELLY DANCING with Fina Naaman
No Experience Necessary, Drop-ins welcome!
Discover the many health benefits of belly dancing! Besides providing a fun, low-impact workout, belly dance strengthens and tones the entire body while developing balance and grace. Belly dancing also improves flexibility of the hips and back as well as increases core strength. It’s a fantastic fun way to get fit, lose weight and shape up! You will learn to use your body in ways that you did not think were possible – your confidence will increase as you improve your belly dancing skills and strengthen your body!
Wear workout clothes such as yoga pants and a sports bra, or a form-fitting tank top (no baggy tee-shirts) so you and your teacher can see your muscles work to ensure you are performing the movements correctly.
HOOP DANCE with Bonnie Brown
Let your Inner Child out to play!
Hoop dance is an emerging form of creative movement that combines ecstatic dance, meditation, exercise and play. This dance offers stronger connections, not only between one’s own mind and body, but also to a larger community. Hooping with larger, hand-crafted versions of the traditional hula hoop not only massages, exercises and tones the body, it also offers a cleansing, healing practice.
Beginners will get all the tools and techniques needed to get started on the hoop path and to find their own unique rhythm to dance – their “Flow.” There will be a series of basic moves and techniques taught for keeping the hoop up, recovery methods, dancing in your hoop, and other simple methods for moving in and out of the hoop. Hoops of various sizes will be provided to use during classes. Your own personal hand-crafted hoop can be purchased through Bonnie.
Tuesdays – 5:30 pm
Filled with dynamic movement, this class is designed to shape and tone. With a combination of yoga and Pilates, this energizing hour will work with your entire body, with a focus on flexibility, power and strength. The influence of both Yoga and Pilates is set to a dance-like tone intended to increase your mobility while building a strong core foundation. The beauty of this class is its aptitude to create muscle tone while lengthening and stretching the limbs instead of impacting the joints and building bulk. Combined with meditation and breath work you should leave this class feeling rejuvenated and fit! Naomi is a licensed Zumba instructor and TRX trainer with a passion for belly dancing and yoga.
